Sausalito's Floating HomesDownload audio (MP3)
Sausalito's houseboats range from the palatial to the questionably seaworthy, and the community counts among its members doctors and lawyers as well as some of the original artists and bohemians who created the waterfront neighborhood. What's it like to live in a floating home?
Host: Michael Krasny
- Cyra McFadden, houseboat resident, writer and editor
- Joe Tate, houseboat resident, leader during the "houseboat wars" and lead singer/guitarist for the RedLegs, the waterfront's homegrown rock band
- Larry Clinton, houseboat resident since 1982 and president of the Sausalito Historical Society
- Stan Barberich, president of the Harbor Equity Group, a Waldo Point Harbor resident association, former president of the Floating Homes Association and houseboat resident for 27 years
We'll talk to several longtime residents about the history of the community, and discuss big changes currently underway to disperse and remove some of the more eclectic and ramshackle residences.
